Thimerosal - The Science

"Mercury is a unique poison in that it incapacitates numerous enzymes in cells, including those used to neutralize free radicals."

Does danger lurk in that vaccine? By Judy Thomas (pdf) 101/14/05
"Only Sanofi Pasteur is approved to market a new mercury-free pediatric flu vaccine. Spokesman Len Lavenda said the company had planned to make 8 million doses of the mercury-free version of its Fluzone vaccine for this flu season but has cut back to 6 million doses. The CDC estimates it would take about 12 million doses to vaccinate all children ages 6 months to 23 months.

"We were prepared to more than double the quantity this year, but demand for the product didn't warrant producing that much," Lavenda said. "While we have on several occasions sold out all of our preservative-containing (mercury) vaccine in the last several years, we have never sold out all of our preservative-free vaccine."

Lavenda said he had no idea why health officials were not ordering more mercury-free vaccine."

Vaccination Recommendations

Required vaccinations and fear of serious side effects from thimerosal create a nerve racking dilmena.   The following are recommendations by experts in the field on how to protect your child through immunization while minimizing serious side effects.

Hugh Fudenberg, MD Immunization time schedule recommendation, world's leading immunogeneticist - see Prevention

General Immunization Philosophy, Brian Jepson, MD - Children's Biomedical Center of Utah (pdf)

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations by Stephanie Cave, M.D. & Deborah Mitchell - Both sides of the vaccination issue with a well-rounded resource package so to best decide when/what vaccines to give your child.

For safety, all sources recommend insisting on thimerosal-free, single dose vaccines.

"If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots." states Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals) in a speech at the NVIC International Vaccine Conference, Arlington, VA September, 1997. Dr. Fudenberg said this was due to mercury and aluminum that is in every flu shot (and most childhood shots). The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. Incidence of Alzheimer's is expected to quadruple in the future.

Flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury. One microgram is considered toxic.
